A big thank you to staff at the Vale of Leven hospital and royal alexandria hospital in Paisley. With my first child they did everything to ensure a safe arrival taking in to account all my pregnancy issues and I narrowly missed an emcs thanks to a great consultant. With my second a multitude of reduced movements slow growth were monitored and then the fast acting mw who saved her life by getting me an emcs rapidly once realising my placenta was failing. They held my hand, they supported my partner and stroked my head as they worked so hard to get my baby out alive. They made sure my little boy got to meet his little sister and we celebrated the joy she is when the outcome was so close to being different. Il never forget.
